Mr. Winterbottom's plant is identical with specimens of J, anemonoides of Kare-
lia and Elirilow; but the characters by which these botanists distinguish that species
from L Thalictroides are, we feai?, not of sufficient importance. The petals in the
European plant vary much in shape, and those of Carniolian specimens in Herb.
Hook., collected by Mr. Bentham, are the same as those of the Altai plant, while
in others every possible degree of intermediate form may be observed. The scaly
elongated root is therefore the only constant distinguishing character, and that de-
pends in all probability on the age of the plant, or on some other accidental circum-

The amount of division of the leaves varies just as much in Siberian as it does in
Himalayan specimens. We have therefore reduced Z. microphyllum of Royle, which
is not otherwise distinct. The petals are always, we beliere, bifid in. the Siberian
plant; generally entire, bat sometimes retase or emargiiiate in the Himalayan one.
